Veronica Ryan selected to create sculpture to honour the Windrush generation

Our upcoming exhibiting artist Veronica Ryan is selected alongside artist Thomas J Price to create a new sculpture honouring the Windrush generation, to be unveiled in London in 2021.

These new sculptures will become the first permanent artworks to honour the Windrush generation. Read more via The Guardian.

In 2021, Spike Island is to present a major solo exhibition of new work by Veronica Ryan, in addition to producing a monograph with the distinguished British sculptor. This is supported by The Freelands Award which enables a regional arts organisation to present a large-scale exhibition, including a significant new work, by a mid-career female artist who may not have yet received the acclaim or public recognition that her work deserves.
